Bittersweet
Pros: The car was clean, new, functioning, and convenient.
Cons: I don't like the price, definitely. I didn't like having to go out to LaGuardia to pick it up when there is a Hertz location just by my apartment in the city.

Pros: I returned car to NYC - did not have new rental there. Questions don't really apply.
Cons: Difficult to find car rental return place. Did not see signs on airport property for rental return. Was very concerned about being late. Finally had to stop and research where location was while I was on airport property.

Oct 29 2016
Cons: It was not obvious where to return the car when I pulled in and there was no one directing returns so I parked it in the wrong place for check out. I was charged for an extra hour on the return although the times out and return were less than an hour apart. At least 10 minutes or more of this was due to not returning to the correct place in the lot. This resulted in an additional charge of $17 which is unreasonable.

Cons: Wasn't able to rent the car because I had a debit card. When I asked if my boyfriend could come and put down his credit card and license and rent the car and authorize me as a driver, she said no because she didn't like my attitude. It was a terrible and traumatizing experience. Will never ever try to rent from Avis again.

Worst experience
Pros: I liked nothing about the service marketing was misleading
Cons: We set up for a rental they asked for payment and license information. Credit cards are under my wife's name she holds no license. We were using my license they booked our pick up for 6am. We arrive at avis to be told credit card and license must have the same name. We couldn't get the rental and were told the pre paid amount was not going to be refunded to us.

Nov 26 2016
Never again
Cons: I received 2 email confirmations and I made 2 phone calls to Avis confirming my pick up in NYC, and my drop off in Port jervis. When I arrived at my drop off location, there was a hand written note on the door saying they were closed for the entire weekend and wouldn't be back until Monday. There was no drop off box or instructions on how to drop off this car. Why did Avis confirm my drop off at Port jervis if the location was closed? You need a better handle on drop off locations that just decide to close without notice and screw people over like me.

Jun 12 2017
Cons: The Avis location ran out of cars for over 4 of us who had confirmed reservations. After they ran out of cars they refused to give us an ETA on when cars would be arriving from another location. The workers were then extremely rude while we tried to get clarity on the situation and then locked themselves in the employee lounge and hid from us for the 45 minutes it took to get the new cars delivered. Some people just left for a nearby hertz.

Pros: Car was easy to pickup and drop off. It was nice to be able to drop off at a different location. Car was very clean and new.

Nov 21 2016
Pros: Car was as described.
Cons: The wait time upon arrival/pick-up was deplorable. Two individuals working with only one individual actually attempting to process client's rentals while the other looked on. Total time from arrival at counter to receiving car was approximately 40min. Upon return, the electronic check-in device for the outside staff was not working correctly. I was told to proceed to the check-out counter with my contract in hand. When I arrived, the agent had a long line of customers picking up so they couldn't assist me promptly. I again had to wait in line just to return the car.

I don't think it really matters
Pros: Not much
Cons: I don't think it really matters, nothing will be done, and I'll gain nothing from this, so I'm not wasting my time discussing it with you, unless I will actually get something for it, and then you can personally email me again at gfriedman@aish.com. The chances are that you won't, because nobody really reads this anyway:)

Excellent service
Pros: The person who checked the car out to us at JFK was efficient, clear, and helpful. Having the check-in person at PHL see that we had a toddler and tons of bags and drive us back to the airport to drop us at the curb was fucking amazing. THANK YOU!!!!!!!
Cons: Not being able to use the ez pass as you go. There's no way we would have needed $20 per day of tolls. Maybe a single flat fee and then pay the ez pass tolls you accrue would make more sense.

Pros: Denise was very helpful with our rental. She accommodated our needs and helped us solve a problem that we had when we arrived. It was much appreciated.
Cons: Just need to remember that with taxes + fees, the rental always ends up being at least $100 more than what Kayak estimates (I forgot about that one). So estimated was $230, ended up being a little under $350.

worst experience ever
Cons: we booked a car through Kayak. There were no cars at the location that the booking indicated on the Kayak booking. The staff there was rude and unhelpful. We called Kayak, they told to call Budget. We called Budget they told us they could not help because we had made the booking through a third party. There were 5 of us with three underaged kids and luggage in the cold of winter. The whole experience cost us a $300 Uber ride to our destination on Christmas day., without any apology or compensation from neither Kayak nor Budget. Never again will I book anything through Kayak.

Car not washed and gas tank not full
Cons: I was really surprised when my car had not been washed and the gas tank was not full. I was leaving New York City at 9 pm at night and would have to stop for gas in order to get to Boston. I pushed to get another car with a nearly full tank which they agreed to do. This was the first time I rented a car without a full tank. I'd be hard pressed to rent from Budget again as a result.

Beware: The "Cargo" vans advertised have SEATS!
Cons: I reserved a van that was called a "cargo" van only to find it has seats installed that could not be removed. I only learned this on the day I went to pick it up!

Meh
Pros: The two staff members behind the desk were nice and did their jobs well with a holiday line of customers in front of them.
Cons: Nothing annoys me more that another staffer yelling out about something another staffer did. A guy walked out and yelled about a clipboard while the other two were working on customers. It was unprofessional and it made me roll my eyes. Getting the car is a bit confusing. Was told to wait upfront but when I did and the security guy checked my paperwork, he wasnt sure which one my car should be and then told me to wait and he walked away. I stood for five minutes not really knowing what was going on or if someone was actually helping me. It was confusing.

Unprofessional
Cons: Its weird. I live in NYC and am otherwise prepared for the "indifferent New Yorker" thing, but this budget office takes it to the next level. The guy who met me when I pulled in spoke in a manner where I couldn't understand him. I asked him to repeat the same thing four times before he finally said "your agreement". I handed it to him, he checked inside the car, handed me the agreement without looking at me, just stuck his arm out while still looking at something in the car, and said "go to the counter". I get to the counter and the guy there checks me out, prints the receipt and hands it to me.....without looking at me! Is horrendous eye contact while giving you things a part of the training?

Pros: Customer Service was great. Staff was friendly and accommodating. Had to switch vehicles because the first one did not have a toll box within vehicle.
Cons: Asked for the prepay option for gas & it was left off. So, I had to pay for the higher rate on gas when I returned the vehicle (almost double). It was inconvenient that I did have to switch vehicles because of the toll box which was a necessity for me & told the staff at the start. This caused the transaction to take about an hour start to finish getting me on the road later than expected.

Ask the NY State Police
Pros: The car got me where I needed to go.
Cons: The sold me an inactive EZPass for $23.99 a day which caused my to be pulled over by the NY State Police on my way to CT. The location keeps insisting it not their fault. Huh? How could it possibly be mine? The car had 40k on it and smelled like fast food. That's my last time renting from Advantage.

Botched pick up address, dirty expensive car
Pros: The airport shuttle staff was very friendly and efficient.
Cons: I was given the wrong pick up location address in the booking email. When without a car and using buses to get around, this was frustrating and time consuming. The address was from a location they moved out of 8 months ago - someone please change that in the system? The EZ pass was $22 a day just to have... this is significantly more than I’ve had to pay with other rental agencies so I opted out and had to avoid tolls which is of course impossible when returning to NY. The car itself smelled of smoke and did not appear to have been cleaned inside or outside when given to me - my boyfriend had to sit on a piece of cardboard he put in the passenger seat to avoid getting goopy brown stuff that was on the seat on his pants.

Ran out of cars!!!! Could not get to my destination!!
Pros: Not a single thing.
Cons: Given the wrong rental car address to start. Upon arriving at the actual location, the place was disorganized and overbooked by extreme proportions. Almost everyone in the line had to leave because there were not enough cars! Couldn’t get to my final destination because rental agencies were either closed or so expensive to rent from day of. Still waiting to hear from customer service.

It took forever to pick up the car, they have only one person working at a time to help people. I guess that's what I get for the good deal I got. I will do my best not to rent from Payless again.

May 13 2018
Pros: Nothing
Cons: We had to switch through 3 cars to finally get a car that was reliable. The first car we were given had low tire pressure and none of the air pumps at the Payless location were working at the La Guardia airport. We ended up spending 2 hours at the location to switch to a second car. The next day we had a flat tire on that rental. We ended up using a family car to get around for the next 2 days because Payless was not responding to any of our phone calls. Finally, we got in touch with Payless' roadside assistance to get the car towed and our car switched to another downgraded vehicle. The tow truck driver consumed 2 hours of our time as he did not know how to unload the vehicle off the truck. After our trip we ended up getting a bill for all of the tolls accrued on every vehicle. Not only was the customer service poor, there was nothing done to compensate for the troubles that we had to go through to get through our trip. Payless is unreliable, unresponsive and not work the time or money.

scarebones rental but the price was right
Pros: Well, if you can find the place, it isn't terrible. No one was there when I dropped off the car @ 6 am, and there was no drop box so I had to leave the keys in the car. The car itself was fine and the rental was a really good price, so keep that in mind. But it was a hassle returning the car as the Google maps address was in the airport service road complex, and I had to figure out the public address by asking.

Top tips for renting a car in New York

Typically morning the busy morning traffic lasts from 7 a.m. to 9 a.m., while the afternoon and evening traffic is usually from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. Drivers should take care, though, that those are the busiest times, but often rush hour can start even earlier in the morning and last even later at night.
